Earlier today ITV sent out a press release regarding their ITV Player app’s latest update. The part of the press release that most caught the eye was regarding handset comatibility. Rather than specify a set of minimum specs or even a required version of Android the press release instead stated that due to Android fragmentation the app would only be available on Samsung devices until the end of August. Obviously there are a great many non Samsung devices that would happily run this app so it seems that this is infact a very thinly disguised attempt to conceal a media content tie in. Why they feel the need to hide it in this way is beyond me.
To install you must have ‘unknown sources’ ticked in System Settings–Security then just download this file and install.
